TEXAS: A list of coronavirus “vaccination hubs” that will get the state’s next shipment of vaccines are published by Texas health officials on Sunday.
According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, this week the 28 hubs will get 158,825 doses of the vaccine. Another 38,300 doses will go to other providers across the state.
DSHS said, on its own estimate of how many people it could vaccinate in a week the number of doses that each provider is getting is determined.
As Texas continues to prioritize vaccinating people who are health care workers, people who are 65 and older, and those with poor medical conditions, the hubs are meant to streamline large-scale vaccination.
The 28 hubs for this week are located in some of the state’s biggest metropolitan cities, also the Rio Grande Valley, and more rural areas.
DSHS said the hubs will be required to set up registration contact numbers and websites and to focus on the vulnerable communities in their area.
